Graduation 2018


On Friday the 23rd November 2018 PCI College welcomed it’s graduating Class of 2018 to St. Ann’s Church, Dawson Street, in Dublin 2. This year we were joined by 149 graduands, who along with their family and friends were welcomed to the ceremony by our Year 2 Head of BSc (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy, Colm Early, who opened the proceedings. Gael Kilduff, our Acting Head of Counselling and Psychotherapy, gave an inspiring welcoming address where she spoke about the need for the former students to practice self-care as they embark on their role as Therapists.


PCI College Academic Director, Rose Bedford, gave the congratulatory address to graduands. In this speech, Rose acknowledged the hard work that they had each put into their studies to reach this point. Rose also reminded them that learning is forever on-going.


Following the staff procession which signalised the end of the ceremony, the graduates and their family and friends were invited to enjoy some refreshments in 37 Dawson St.


A huge congratulations to all our graduates.

What our Students Say

"This course highlighted and revisited some of the areas I have covered before - it has given me the confidence to start actively looking at creative play again...a real breath of fresh air for practical, back to basics ways of working with children & after-all play is child's work."
Sarah-Jane Conneff - Child & Adolescent Counselling Taster Day
